P.A.Inamdar College of Visual Effects, Design & Arts, always promote our students to engage themselves with the world animation and media communities. In the same context here we are making a short list of societies related with animation and media, so that our students get in connection with them and get updated by the latest activities of world wide animation industry or communities. Our effort is not only for our own students, but we feel happy if any body who is in the animation field or interested for animation or media will find our contribution helpful to them.
